Eleanor's BACK!!! This week at the NY auto show, ford will unveil the new top dog mustang. The Shelby Cobra GT500 will have somewhere upwards of 450hp, i'm guessing 500 hp based on the name. This is gonna come from a supercharged 5.4L V8. Motor Trend said in their April issue that this will be the same motor that powers the Ford GT, and also said the Shelby Stang will get the full 550hp. There haven't been any confirmed reports on the specs for this car, so we shall see on the 23rd, although there are rumours that specs will be anounced tonight at midnight. The only thing we hear from ford so far is in an article about the new SVT Adrenalin, a 390hp version of the revised Explorer Sport Track shown at Detroit. http://media.ford.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=20470 all they say about the stang in there though is this: "Along with the Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 - which will go on sale in 2006 - Adrenalin will continue SVT's product momentum that has been growing since the introduction of the acclaimed Ford GT super car in 2004." So it seems the Shelby Mustang will be built by SVT, but not labeled as one. The naming of the top dog stang has been the subject of quite a lot of debate in the huge mustang enthusiast crowd.
